Do you have gifts for caring, encouragement, and listening? If so, please prayerfully consider becoming a Stephen Minister. Stephen Ministers provide emotional and spiritual support and care to people who are going through a difficult time, such as divorce, grief, hospitalization, unemployment, terminal illness, relocation, chronic illness, or loneliness. Come to one of our information meetings to find out more about becoming a Stephen Minister or how you or someone you know could be matched with a Stephen Minister.
Every day you see people who are hurting: those who have lost a job, have lost a loved one, have gone through a divorce, or are battling a terminal illness. Stephen Ministers are God’s representatives who bring his love to those who are hurting. God is waiting to make a difference in their lives through you! If you want to find out more about how you can be involved in this one-to-one caregiving ministry, please come to one of our information meetings.
More Blessings Than I Ever Expected!”
“At first I wasn’t sure about all this caregiving stuff. I mean, didn’t I love others enough already? Then I finished my Stephen Ministry training and met with the person for whom I provided care. Now I know what Christian love is all about! I didn’t expect the wonderful gifts of love and friendship that God gave me through my caring relationship. What a wonderful ministry this is!”
A new training class for Stephen Ministers is starting soon. Please consider this ministry opportunity.
Northland will be training another class of Stephen Ministers the beginning of 2020. Stephen Ministers work alongside our pastors to care, encourage, and provide emotional and spiritual support to people who are going through a difficult time, such as divorce, grief, hospitalization, unemployment, terminal illness, relocation, chronic illness, or loneliness. If you have gifts for caring, encouragement, and listening, please begin to prayerfully consider whether you might want to be part of this exciting ministry. If you think you might be interested, talk with one of our Stephen Ministry Leaders: Lynda Mason and her team.
